\There are no bounds to the longing, the desire, the bliss, and the anguish of love. The world, power, fame, glory, honor, chivalry, loyalty, friendship....all are swept away. Only one thing is left alive...yearning, yearning, insatiable desire...." Richard Wagner
Of all operas, perhaps the one that least needs ingenious extra musical assistance is,'Tristan' this aurally erotic work that speaks so vividly to the listener's inner eye. Wagner's score is simply more illustrative and sensuously pictorial than any series of stage pictures could be. Golo Berg's sensuous conducting of the Dessau Philharmonic, continually presses that truth home. He leads the orchestra in a lithe and propulsive performance that shows unusual consideration for the wonderful voices of the singers. A sensational opera night from a small German opera company.
"The cheering was loud and prolonged (...) This Dessau Tristan is a musical gem and makes for a superb evening." MDR"
